A Day At Disneyland

Eleanor turned four this month, and Disneyland was what her heart desired. Seeing the expressions on her face when she met Mickey Mouse, and her favorites characters were priceless. Join us for a fun filled day at the “happiest place on earth.”

Our first stop was Toontown, where Pluto greeted us. Pluto, also called Pluto the Pup, is a cartoon dog created in 1930 at Walt Disney Productions. Walt was inspired to create Disney’s top dog by remembering the personable pooches he met while living on the farm in his childhood home of Marceline, Missouri. Ever since Pluto has, as Walt put it, been “working hard and trying, but usually not succeeding, in staying out of trouble.” Pluto is Mickey’s pet.

Meeting Alice was Eleanor’s favorite experience. Alice in Wonderland is a 1951 American animated musical fantasy-adventure film produced by Walt Disney Productions and based on the Alice books by Lewis Carroll. The 13th of Disney’s animated features, the film premiered in New York City and London on July 26, 1951. The Mad Hatter wished Eleanor the happiest of birthdays.

A day at the Magic Kingdom is not enough time to see all Disneyland has to offer, but we made the most of it. “It’s a Small World,” walking with the “Beast,” meeting “Snow White, Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Minnie Mouse,” riding in the tea cups, pictures, popcorn and souvenirs made this the best day ever!

Disneyland Fun!

last week we ventured down to Disneyland.  We went down with a bunch of family, and had a great time!  I haven’t been to Disneyland since I was a little girl.  The rides, the junk food, the characters, it was all so fun to see.  We had 3 little kids with us, and the look on their faces was priceless when we entered the park.  It was the best part of my day, seeing their excitement!  Our first day we went to the park around 10, and the we snuck out around 3:30, while everyone else stayed until 9pm.  Dave and I stayed back the second day, while everyone else went from 10-10pm.  I couldn’t do another day, I was beat.  Disneyland is fun, but exhausting.  I was completely over stimulated, and we needed to get back to Santa Barbara, so we left on Friday.  What impressed me most, and maybe it’s because we don’t have kids, or maybe it’s because these kids are really good, is that the 3 littles with us, went all day with no whining or crying all day!  All in all it was a great time!  What would be awesome is if you lived in Anaheim and could get the yearly pass, and go whenever you want.  Now that would be cool!
